    MORE STS SPY PICS! Art and Science be damned!

    Clicky!




    Whoa people. Haven't seen these anywhere else, thought I'd throw them down. Looks as though the art and science will be here, but... it... might... look.. good....

    I have the photocopy pic and these, and the front and back look different. Notice the photocopy has the taillights with a slight protrusion, yet the protrusion doesn't show in the newer spy photos. Also, you'll note that the body IS bigger than a CTS.

    Good possibilities here...

    I'm thinking it's gonna have some of the look of the newer STS + some A&S, but not much. Either way.. I'M DROOLING WITH ANTICIPATION.



    Oh! I forgot to mention! I took a look at the other pics, and being an avid photographer / digital publications guy-

    1. The R&T is a total computer dupe. The wheels are from the 16, the rest is 16 + CTS + a little blending. You'll note the windshield has been darkened, and the grill has rainbow artifacting from a shitty resample job.
    2. The photocopy was an artists rendition or a computer generated pic. You can see that the reflections and lighting in the pic are completely different - the car has a downward shadow, yet the major light source is coming from an angle - usually found in artist's rendtions to make the picture look better.

    Either way, I think that the photocopy spy pic may be VERY close to what the car will look like- the shape is very similar.

    Ok, end of my $.02

    Very nice..... So the R/T is completely bogus...... It seems weird that they would put bogus pictures in there.....

    I don't think the R&T photo is completely bogus. It says in the magazine that it is a computer enhanced image - no subterfuge there. It could still be a reasonably true representation depending on where they got their information and photo.

    I'm leaning more towards the R/T pic being some sort of reinterpretation. When I get photoshop reinstalled on my work machine here tonight, I'll point out exactly what they did- However.. judging from the shape that's under these new spy pics.. R/T may be closer than we think- but I don't think the car is going to have as much style from the 16 as everyone thinks. The Sixteen seems to be a product that will have its own style to it, so I wouldn't be cutting any parts of that to make the new Seville. If anything, I think it will be CTS / Imaj Concept influenced, with a touch of late model Seville.
